    In my experience standard users never found the Win 7 backup either

    As to the backup, not hard to find in the Control panel
    yes, but standard users will not find it, I am sure you agree

    try and make a system image, and you have to revert to the legacy Win7 image backup which is well hidden so users can't find it

    I can write a book about Win8, but this is my last comment on this subject so I don't offend Win8 lovers

    I constantly test things so I often rename plugins etc and I am constantly agreeing to admin requests, very frustrating when I am already the admin
    Then if you don't use a Win 8 system as a normal everyday user you can't really be giving out information on standard usage. What you do is not the same as a normal user. As stated earlier, under normal everyday usage you rarely if ever get Admin requests

Only time I get Admin requests is either when I'm installing something or when I try to access a protected area on the C Drive (which I rarely have to do as it's not an everyday thing). Under normal usage and accessing folders anywhere else I never get a message

    the only way to disable it for good is by disabling this

    this will however destroy all metro apps from running

    I'm not getting them, either. I've been using Win 8 since release and enjoying it.

    Must be something strange on your setup, I've been running a few systems with Win 8 and rarely get Admin requests unless I'm installing something. On standard day to day usage I never get Admin requests

    actually, I have UAC all the way to the bottom on my Win8 drive and I do get admin requests all the time, I don't get them on my Win7 drive

    I'd have to disagree, I've been using Win 8 for about 9 months now on my laptop. I still don't like it personally but had to learn it for work, but don't find it slower than Win 7 and if you turn off UAC like most of us did under Win 7 then you don't get any more Admin requests than under Win 7 on day to day usage.
    I do agree with about touchscreens though, on a laptop it's just a gimmick as pretty much all software still uses the keyboard and mouse so there's no real advantage to having a touch screen

    EDIUS 6.07 will not install in Win8, you need 6.52 or later

    I would stay clear of touch screen because you will be cleaning your screen all day long, use the mouse instead, also, demand the laptop with Win7, it is a faster OS than Win8, far less clicking to confirm admin requests

    if you buy at Dell, you can choose Win7 or Win8 for any laptop model
